The Haskell Symposium 2008 is part of the 2008 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) as an associated ACM SIGPLAN sponsored symposium.

The purpose of the Haskell Symposium is to discuss experience with Haskell, and future developments for the language. The scope of the symposium includes all aspects of the design, semantics, theory, application, implementation, and teaching of Haskell. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Papers in the latter two categories need not necessarily report original research results; they may instead, for example, report practical experience that will be useful to others, re-usable programming idioms, or elegant new ways of approaching a problem. The key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a contribution from which other practitioners can benefit. It is not enough simply to describe a program!

Before 2008, the Haskell Symposium was known as the Haskell Workshop. The name change reflects the steady increase of influence of the Haskell Workshop on the wider community, as well as the high quality of accepted papers in recent years. Previously, Haskell Workshops have been held in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam (1997), Paris (1999), Montreal (2000), Firenze (2001), Pittsburgh (2002), Uppsala (2003), Snowbird (2004), Tallinn (2005), Portland, Oregon (2006), Freiburg (2007).

Submission Details

Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF), formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines (http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm). The length is restricted to 12 pages, and the font size 9pt. Each submission must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy, as explained on the web. Violation risks summary rejection of the offending submission.

Paper submissions can be made via the easychair webpage http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=haskell08

Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.

If there is sufficient demand, we will try to organize a time slot for system or tool demonstrations. If you are interested in demonstrating a Haskell related tool or application, please send a brief demo proposal to Andy Gill, andygill@ku.edu.
